    especially when you hit things in them, its always fun having to reattach things with only two bolts left in the freezing cold on wet, puddly ground

    Trying my best. :oops:

    I'm starting a new job this week, and at some point I want to go back to school. I just need to figure out what I want to go for.

    Search "ministry of truth misinformation" or "ministry of truth misinformation biden" on some search engines and you will find something intriguing.:rolleyes:(duckduckgo is better than google, since the latter often gives biased result)

    I have too much time on my hands...



    "We initially thought Candella Motor Company were joking when they said they were going to return to their performance roots from the 60's. Well, Candella Performance are back again, this time with a compact crossover that's a little more than hot!

    What can we say about the Candella Casa that we already haven't? Candella have already answered our prayers by putting a larger 2.5L gasser 4-cylinder when we said the 1.5L turbo wasn't enough. Well, it seems that their Skunkworks have gotten ahold of the Casa as well. They've somehow managed to shove a 250HP 3.0L V6 in the thing! Mated exclusively to Candella's buttery smooth 8-speed automatic driving the front wheels through a brand new electronic differential, the Casa Sport is downright fast! We managed 0-60MPH in a little under 6.5 seconds, and Candella claim a limited top speed of 155MPH. Any faster, they say, and the twist beam rear suspension becomes too unstable. Despite the slightly old-fashioned rear end, the Casa Sport devastated our slalom and generated an astonishing 1.05G on the skid pad.

    The Casa Sport also received much bigger brakes than the standard Casa or Casa Turbo. Stops from 60MPH took an average of 112ft. That's good.

    Inside, Casa Sport is all sport. No leather, but Al Cantera on black vinyl. Material fit an finish are acceptable, but the materials themselves are cheap feeling. Seems Candella still struggle with interior quality these days.

    Candella Sport comes one way: Fully loaded. Prices are $50,999, add $400 for the 'Speed Green" paintwork on our test car.

    Candella Sport is set to go on-sale early fall of this year."

    Most, if not all "war on XXX" are nonsense.

    For example the War on Terror is actually War for Fun and Profit, sponsored by Big Oil

    War on Terror? How about "War on Fun"!
    We need to build at least 15000 more Amphibious Jet Carpet Bomb Tanks and use LOTS of oil or we will most definitely die.
    Can you say eh hehe?

    So, this is my dad's. It just came back from paint:

    I love it. We call it Purple Haze.

    It's the slowest car I've ever driven. A bicycle would give it a run for its money.

    4.6 2-valve with an EVAP code. EVAP is causing lean condition on both banks. I'd be surprised if it's making 150HP right now. The entire powertrain in this car is very tired. I'm trying to convince my dad to Godzilla swap it, but no dice so far.
